Provide your comments and suggestions on the CEC’s new trilateral projects

As part of Canada, Mexico and the United States’ renewed commitment to environmental cooperation, the Joint Public Advisory Committee (JPAC) is seeking comments and suggestions from citizens across North America, on five new trilateral projects aligned with the CEC’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, which outlines key priorities for environmental cooperation in the region.

Based on comments received from the public, JPAC members will provide an Advice to the Council. This Advice will include recommendations for the implementation of the projects, and suggestions on key organizations to collaborate and partner with in order to maximize successful implementation.
